Brendan Rodgers is confident his Liverpool players possess the necessary ingredients to get the better of title rivals Chelsea when the two teams meet at Anfield this weekend.
Liverpool will go into that game five points ahead of Jose Mourinho’s side following their 3-2 win at Norwich City on Sunday, which followed an unexpected victory by bottom club Sunderland at Chelsea the previous day.
Victory next Sunday would put Liverpool within touching distance of their first ever Premier League title with two games left to play.
Their rise to the top of the table, which has also seen them overtake Manchester City and Arsenal, has been achieved through attractive, attacking play and Rodgers gave an insight into the philosophy that has helped them get there.
“When they are in the changing room just before we go out, I always tell them, ‘Lose yourself, focus on the ball and focus on the team. If you do that, then we can be a real force,'” he said.
